WordPress Theme Development

Posted by Dave Tittensor, Published: 06-Aug-2013
Although I've written my own blogging software over the past few years and do intend to keep playing with it I felt it was time to checkout WordPress. I'm more interested in WordPress's ability of being a CMS than a blogging tool. With looking into it then I felt it would also be useful to learn how to come up with basic theme development for personal and maybe future use in the workplace. This development includes looking into creating Widgets for use in the themes.

To start with I've come u…

HTML5 Embedded Video

Posted by Dave Tittensor, Published: 07-Apr-2013
I've been looking into adding features onto here that bring the whole experience more in line with the main stream blog programs. I've seen that both video and images are a major tool when writing blog's and up until now I've only dabbled with adding YouTube embedding into the site.

I've now with some trail and error managed to get HTML5 video embedded successfully into here. It only works on locally hosted content but wouldn't take much tweaking to make it work with external content. I do in…

I've finally took it upon myself to do a slight redesign and move the site completely over to HTML5.

Its nearly that time a year again for Movember. The aim of it is to raise funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Last year the global effect combining 854,000 individuals managed to raise a staggering GBP £79.3 million. I myself only managed to raise £100 of sponsorship towards that figure. This year I'll be happy to at least get half of that figure, after all every little does help. My sponsorship page can be found here where you can sponsor me…

Cupcake Workshop

Posted by Dave Tittensor, Published: 06-Apr-2012
Today we went to a cupcake workshop at Jacques Cakes and I have to say it was a fantastic experience to the point we are planning on doing another class there. We learnt how to add colour to icing, create the shapes with it including a rose and then add the topping onto the cupcakes. Well worth doing if your in the area or have the chance to do so.
